Weight Loss and Management Programs
IMPORTANT: Due to COVID-19 preparedness and response efforts, the Center for Weight and Wellness is suspending all weight management groups until further notice. Your missed weeks will be added to the end of your program. Even though our groups are temporarily suspended, we are still working to help our patients meet their weight management goals.

The Lifespan Center for Weight and Wellness provides the most comprehensive, integrated care to support each patient’s goals for achieving a healthy weight and wellness. The center offers treatment for moderately to severely overweight adults at its locations in Providence and East Greenwich.
We develop a treatment plan for each patient based on his or her weight loss goals and psychological and medical conditions. All our programs include ongoing medical assessment and treatment, instruction in behavioral strategies, exercise consultations and instruction, and nutritional counseling.
